Community is Important
The school community arguably sits alongside a well-developed curriculum as the most important factor that influences how effective a school is at delivering education. A culture of safety, trust, intentional care, creativity, curiosity/inquiry, risk-taking, and focus are all so important. It takes special teachers, students, leadership, vision, and a lot of careful tending in order to create such an atmosphere in our community.
Christian Community Focus
An important part of how we engage in Christian education is in the promotion of specific values. We consider peace, unity, respect, love, and selflessness to be principal values and are at the heart of Christian community. Regardless of personal faith, these are principles that foster friendship, understanding, and collaboration. Policy and tradition promote these qualities at TCIS, and the atmosphere is felt and carried by stakeholders at all levels.
